At ArcelorMittal Europe, we provide solutions with certified fire resistance performances in accordance with the most severe standards for testing at the European level:
- Facades, made of insulated sandwich panels, are certified for fire resistance in single storey buildings.
- Composite floor solutions, like Cofrastra®, are fire resistant up to two hours (REI120) without additonal protection.
- CoSFB® flooring solutions, combining the slim floor beam and composite floor concepts, are also fire resistant up to two hours (REI 120) without additional fire protection.
- In single storey public or residential buildings, the combination of our light steel framing solutions and plasterboard internal partitioning offers a suitable and competitive solution concerning fire resistance.
Our R&D department has extensive expertise in fire resistant steel solutions including fire engineering.
As safety is a large part of ArcelorMittal’s core values, we constantly extend our range of products and solutions in order to satisfy the most demanding requirements with respect to fire resistance performance.
Construction components are not tested for fire resistance performance. This performance requirement is only applicable to full building applications such as facades, doors, composite decking, or roofing.
However, products and components are key contributors to fire resistance performance.

New SiCA lecture: Practical ways of achieving fire resistance of steel structures12 October 2023
The mechanical properties of all common building materials decrease with a high elevation of temperature. Steel structural elements should possess appropriate fire resistance to resist the risk of partial or total collapse, flame penetration, or excessive temperature rise on the unexposed faces.In our latest SiCA: Steel in Construction Academy lecture, the inherent fire resistance of unprotected steelwork is introduced and the influence of a variety of insulating systems - of partial member exposure and of composite action - is discussed.Website news
